Happy Sunday and a little contest break here! Recently, I’ve interacted with a couple of GREAT people (one I’ve known for a bit and one I just met) and we all have new projects we’re putting together that we thought we could try and help each other out on. For those of you Most Beloveds who look out here regularly, you know I’m working on a movie trailer to try and use as “content” on a crowdfunding site to help fund a full-run movie I am trying to make – and – for even longer term Most Beloveds, you know how I support Independent Film earnestly. So – working on actually making an Independent, I wanted to draw your attention to a couple of Good Things and see if you could somehow find a way to support them, whether it be monetary or not – maybe spreading the word. Obviously, as an Independent, (we) don’t work for some sort of corporate, soul stealing, spirit sucking company that steals your ideas and then dumps you on the side of the road and pours their cigar ashes over your crumpled body. I work for one of those at the time of this posting and I’m eager to get out of it.
I (we) all know that money is hard to come by these days and we’re not 80s yuppies snorting coke out of stripper’s belly buttons but anything helps. The first thing I would like to bring to your attention is this fancy place run by someone I know and trust:
Just click on that image above to find out ways to help yourself and some other people. And, when I use the word people, I mean animals. When Misty posted about this the other day, I went and read the FAQs on The Rogue Runner site and thought 1) what the fuck, I can walk 5K and get a medal that I can hang around my neck when I go out to The Club and then 2) I’ll donate a lot of money to the animal charity as often as I can because that’s where I got
I’ve always thought that if everyone got a little more cardio things would be a better place, but even if you JUST DO SOME WALKING that will be healthy for you AND – you can get something physically classy for your troubles (of trying to get healthy). This is a GREAT thing and you can watch the center image of the site to see up and coming events. 25 USD is NOTHING when it comes to other expenses you do every day. You can barely buy a box of beer for 20 bucks here anymore.. please think about it – help yourself and someone else – Rogue won’t steal your money – I promise you!
Another thing I came across during my adventures this week had to do with some good people putting together an independent film called LiveLove.
Doing exactly what I’m planning on doing, these guys have put together a nifty trailer for their movie in the hopes of raising money to finish it. I ask that you click on the poster above and give their page a look – maybe you can help out financially or pass the word along on your sites?
And finally – I’m pleased to announce that we have started our own small business:
Who knows if we’ll finish the movie and who knows if we’ll make money, but this is the logo we’ll do our darker movies under!! I hope you approve and here’s to the future!
